iOS Universal, Android • While Civilization Revolution 2 isn’t exactly the highpoint of Sid Meier’s influential Civilization series, it’s the only one we’re likely to ever get on our phones, so it will have to do. If you’ve updated to iOS 11 since its release in September, however, you’ve had to do without. Civ Rev 2 was one of the victims of the App-ocalypse, remaining 32-bit when it needed exactly twice that many bits. It took 2K Games three months to fix the problem, and today they updated Civ Rev 2 to be 64-bit complian,t meaning we can all redownload it at our leisure.
iOS Universal • In the past couple weeks we’ve been introduced to Darkest Dungeon on iPad, a game that plays a lot like XCOM if XCOM were about battling Cthulhu instead of E.T. In all the articles written about DD, I’m referenced XCOM and, yet, haven’t included links to the outstanding iPad version like I have with all the other games we mention. Why? Because XCOM: Enemy Within was one of those games on the 64-bit chopping block and publisher 2K hadn’t said bupkis about it getting updated. Thus, we assumed XCOM would be possibly the biggest loss when iOS 11 rolls out later this year. Turns out our fears were misplaced, as yesterday 2K had some very interesting news.
